Opower to move to new headquarters in Arlington, Virginia


Opower will relocate its global headquarters to a new building in Arlington, Virginia in 2018. Opower will occupy the top three floors of 2311 Wilson Boulevard, a building to be constructed by Carr Properties over the next two years.

Opower has designed the new headquarters with a host of new features. The office will feature an open, collaborative floorplan; outdoor balcony access on all three floors; an open company-wide cafeteria area and gathering space; and fully stocked kitchens on each floor.

The building will also include an open roof deck; an integrated outdoor park; a fully equipped gym; and a staffed day care facility on the ground floor. Like Opower’s current workspace, the new office will be dog friendly and feature video conferencing to connect Opower employees around the globe.

Opower has designed the new space to accommodate existing staff, and to position the company for significant future growth. The building is being designed to meet LEED certification requirements, and will be easily accessible by public transit including three different Metro lines, buses from all points in Virginia, and built-out bike paths. Construction will begin pending the upcoming execution of a lease agreement. The new building is about a quarter mile from Opower’s current location.

This project was supported by a $1 million grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to Arlington County, approved by Governor McAuliffe. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership and its Virginia Jobs Investment Program will provide funding and services to support Opower’s employee training activities.
